Hey, I am unable to connect to my mongodb through SSH. I mostly get EADDRINUSE. I would be happy to at least understand the error – what does it mean?
Error creating SSH Tunnel: connect EADDRINUSE <ip>:22 - Local (0.0.0.0:29418)
I just tried the same setup with Studio3T/Robo3T (alternative GUI client) and the connection is working on the first try.
Sometimes in Compass, without any changes, I even get AUTHENTICATION FAILED. Does that mean mongodb auth or ssh auth? Sometimes, the SSH Port field is highlighted red, sometimes not. So weird.
Any ideas why Compass refuses to connect? I’d prefer using the official software but it just doesn’t seem to work. I have zero idea where to start debugging, what my configuration is missing, or if there are good and free alternatives to Compass. Help?
I tried with a rsa and a ppk file. I saw one post about the identify file being malformed – What kind of identify file is Compass really expecting here?
I have the latest Compass Version (1.23.0).
I tried from two different computers and two different networks.
Thank you for reading.
